The 10th Osaka University Homecoming Day -- May 2nd, 2015

2015-5-2 (Sat) 10:00 -

Once a year, alumni and staff from Osaka University and Osaka University of Foreign Studies come together for Homecoming Day.

To celebrate this 10th Osaka University Homecoming Day, we'd like to extend an invitation to current students and their parental guardians as well to join a more open "OU Family Gathering."

This year's Alumni Lecture will be given by a Osaka University School of Law graduate well-known by his television appearances such as "ChichinPuipui" and "VOICE," Mainichi Broadcasting System, Inc. announcer NISHI Yasushi.

We will also be holding a talk session with Homecoming MC and Kansai Telecasting Corporation announcer SEKI Junko, an Osaka University School of Human Sciences graduate, so be sure to join us!

On Homecoming Day, the spring festival, "Icho Festival," will also be in full bloom!
There will be lots of stands and events to enjoy. We will also have childcare services available.

We encourage you to bring your family and have a great time at OU!

• We ask that you apply through the web registration form. [update: March 16]
